More about this marker. In his book, "Guidebook to the Historic Sites of the War of 1812," Gilbert Collins states, "This impressive monument marks the resting place of soldiers, both British and American, who were interred here during the War of 1812. The monument is on a small knoll where the American cannons were posted during the battle. In 1972 the American Legion placed a marker at the site, which honours U.S. soldiers killed in the War of 1812. The monument is located on King Street near the intersection of Battlefield Drive in the town of Stoney Creek." (page138)
